In 2018, Jayson Tatum put himself on the radar of millions, as a rookie. When Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward went down, the Celtics were expected to fold. Instead, they went back to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they nearly upset LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers.
Jayson Tatum was immediately began to be viewed as a franchise player. Together, he and Jaylen Brown formed a solid, young, duo. The Celtics actually played better with them leading than they did, with Irving and Hayward back, and both would leave Boston.
Currently, Jayson Tatum is playing in the Olympics, representing for Team USA. As the NBA Finals are reaching their conclusion, Tatum is playing for the nation. After last night’s game, Tatum handed his shoes off to a little girl, who happens to be a fan of his.
